the bottom line...
Gage's class learned this poem and recite it every day at school. Not a bad way for any of us to start our day...
THE BOTTOM LINE
FACE IT, Nobody owes you a living
What you achieve or fail to achieve in your lifetime,
is directly related to what you do,
Or fail to do.
No one chooses his parents or childhood,
but you can choose your own direction.
Everyone has problems and obstacles to overcome,
but that, too, is relative to each individual.
NOTHING IS CARVED IN STONE,
You can change anything in your life,
if you want it badly enough.
Excuses are for losers:
Those who take responsibility for their actions
are the real winners in life.
Winners meet life’s challenges head on
knowing there are no guarantees,
and give it all they’ve got,
And never think it’s too late or too early to begin.
Time plays no favorites
and will pass whether you act or not.
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE.
Dare to dream and take risks…
If you aren’t willing to work for your goals,
don’t expect others to.
